We are all going to the Doc to get our Flu Shot, the prince is getting his yearly physical, and Lil'Munchkin is getting his 6 month check up...YUP you read it right 6 MONTHS! I can't even believe it. He is growing up so fast and I love watcing him learn new things. He is rolling over pretty good now and he is almost sitting up on his own. He still has his big bright smile that melts my heart.

The Clan

There hasn't been a whole lot of excitement going on at the castle these days! Lil'Munchkin is growing so fast its so amazing to watch him learn. Yesterday was his first day of rolling over completely! He has been able to go from his belly to his back with out a problem but going from his back to his belly just has quite happened... until yesterday. He went from his back to his belly to his back ...yup! a full on 360!!! Ha-ha. The Prince has been pretty much just working and taking care of all the farm animals and the hay field. He has now added more chickens and several rabbits to the farm animal collection. As for me the Priss I have been working and taking care of the boys. I have been trying to ride my horse when I find time but lately it seems that there is little or no time for the poor horse.

So on Saturday April 4Th I went to the hospital at 6:00pm with my water leaking and some contractions. They hooked me up to the monitors and started watching my contractions and the baby's heart beat and to see how much amniotic fluid I was leaking. I was dilated to a 2 1/2 still so they called the doc and asked what he suggested he had them admit me and start me on Patosin, and so the journey begins....I was started on the Patosin and the contractions started to pick up slowly...by midnight they were starting to hurt and I was dilated to a 4 it was time for the epidural. Once I was given the epidural I felt great for a minute and than I felt like I was going to pass out my blood pressure was getting high so the gentle man who gave me the shot had to inject some other medication to fix the problem and placed on oxygen after that I was great and ready to go...well at about 2am the baby's heart rate was getting way to high and my contractions were getting to close together so they had to shut the Patosin off....by 4 they were able to turn it back on and get me going again...by 6am the next morning (April 5Th) I was dilated to a 6...my this was taking forever...the doc came in about 7:30 and I was still at a 6 and through out the rest of the day I was given high amounts of Patosin and small amounts of Patosin depending on how my contractions were doing...around 2:00pm I was dilated to a 7 and the baby had had a bowel movement so the nurse pumped liquid in to clean it out and refill the sac and by 3:00pm I was at a 9...Wow a 9 the doc said it would be about 10 minutes and I would be about ready to start pushing...I was getting excited the Prince made a guess that I would be done and have the baby at 4:45pm...little did he know that when the doc returned 10 minutes later to check me he told us that my cervix had started to swell and I was about this size of being dilated back to a 7 and the baby was already in the birth canal ready to come....SO we had to do an emergency C-Section...with in about 3 minutes my hospital room was full of nurses and doctors and the Prince was thrown an outfit and told to get dressed...I was unconnected from the machines and taken to the C-Section delivery room where I was placed on the bed and prepared for the surgery...I was scared to death but ready...the Prince came in a few minutes later and was placed in a chair at my head and the surgery began...with in 10 minutes they had the baby out and was making sure he was all healthy (which he was). (The Prince was 3 minutes off of when he was born he was born at 4:42pm.) During the rest of the process I started to get extremely light headed and ready to pass out so the nice gentleman kept giving me medication to help by the time it was all said and done I was fighting to stay awake through the whole thing and about 35 minutes later I was all stitched and stapled back together and prepared to return back to my room. I returned to the room and Jake went to the nursery to help with the tests and the bath. I was in the room for about 2 hrs before I was able to hold my baby...it felt like forever...

After the baby was brought in about 30 minutes later they moved us to our other room where we would spend the rest of our stay at the hospital...as the night went on I was being checked every hour and the nurse started to become concerned about my pulse and blood pressure....I had lost a lot of blood during the labor and the C-Section the I ended up getting a blood transfusion. I received 4 units of blood to get everything back to normal and so I was felling OK...This was scary and not a lot of fun but worth it for our new baby boy and I am so glad that we have him! The Prince and I love him more than anything.

Doc thinks I will deliver by Wednesday but just in case I don't I have an appointment Wednesday morning to be started!! I am so excited the end of the pregnancy is in sight!! I am so excited however what I am not excited for is this dang weather. I hate snow this time of year.

I went to the doc on Monday and I was dilated to a 1 and 80% effaced and he stripped my membranes...Ouch!! I go back tomorrow to see if there is any progress!! Cross your fingers and wish us luck!

4th Prenatal Class

The Prince and I went to our 4Th prenatal class. This was our last class. We were taught how to bath a newborn baby for the first little while with an umbilical cord, birth control options, and a little bit about breast feeding. These classes have been a lot of fun and very informational. I recommend them to any new parents!!

3rd Prenatal Class

Once again both the Prince and I made it to our 3rd prenatal class. We learned alot in our class this week. We learned about the epidural, forceps, head sucker (lol! I can't remember the name of this tool), the fluids given before and after the delivery, and plenty of other things that I can't describe! We also took a tour of the labor and delivery level at the hospital. It was alot of fun. The Prince thinks that the incubator used to keep the baby warm after delivery is the same thing that McDonalds uses to heat there fries!! He is a dork!

I also went to the doctor yesterday and everything is going really well. He told me if I start having contractions with in 3-4 minutes of each other - go to labor and delivery, if my water breaks - go to labor and delivery, if I am worried or concerned - go to labor and delivery!! I am pretty excited we are getting so close I can't wait to see what our little boy will look like!!

2nd Prenatal Class

The Prince and I (yes the 2 of us!) went to our 2nd prenatal class together! This time we learned about the female anatomy and what changes go on for the baby to be delivered, different medications that are given prelabor, during labor, and after labor. The instructor also had a placenta brought down from the delivery room (I knew this ahead of time but didn't inform the prince...why should I spoil the surprise right!) much to my surprise though the prince loved it. The instructor had everyone move to the front of the room so the view was better... I stayed in my seat...however the prince was up there getting pretty close and asking all sorts of questions if she had an extra pair of gloves I swear he would have been all over it! lol! I am glad to know that he won't have a weak stomach in the delivery room! I am going to miss the next class due to a baby shower. The prince says he might go by himself....I guess he really enjoyed himself!


YAHOO!! Oh my do I look like a chub in this picture!

Update on Prenatal Class

Last night was the first night of the prenatal class. The prince ended up having to plow snow so I went alone. The class was very informative and I recommend any 1st timers to make sure that they sign up for one of these classes. We still have 4 weeks left of the class but I feel I have learned so much already. Hopefully the prince will be able to make it to next weeks class he felt bad missing the first day.

Prenatal Class

The prince and I have signed up for a Prenatal Class at the hospital. It starts today. I don't think that either of us know what to expect. I will post tomorrow and let you know how the 1st day goes! I am sure with my prince things are going to be very interesting!!

So far the pregnancy is going well. My feet and hands seem to be swelling more and more but atleast I am not vomiting any more! We do have most of the baby room done! We just need to move in the rocking chair and dresser and move Hank out! Poor Hank!! (P.S. If you haven't voted for Hank and I make sure you do so!) :)

I will post pictures soon!
